Ok, wow…. I have gotten increasingly bad at getting blog posts up in a timely fashion, but Stevie turned ONE on September 21st and we did ALL THE THINGS to celebrate her first year of life coming to a close!!! Of course, the first essential was a photoshoot with 70’s retro flair, to match the theme of her birthday party!
At 9 months pregnant one day shy of her maternity leave, Jess from The Deerwood Co. took us when Stevie was exactly 11 months – we shot early because I needed to have Jess and only Jess!!! She did my maternity photos, Stevie’s Fresh 48 hospital session, newborn pics, 6 month half birthday shoot, and finally the big milestone. We were so happy to create these memories using the same photographer every time – highly recommend doing this for consistency in style and aesthetic! Below, you can scroll through all of my favorites from this adorable session! Makes me want to have ten more babies!!! Fun fact: The romper Stevie wore for the actual smashing of cake is the same one Indie wore to hers! Nostalgia!
We also had so squeeze in a few family portraits before she went on leave and I’m so happy we did because I am absolutely in love with the photos!!!! Indie was literally recovering from pink eye and I was terrified that she would 1. look puffy but more importantly 2. give it to the baby, who was the star of the show on this day. Lucky for me, everyone came out unscathed for the big shoots and I just adore all of these photos!! Happy scrolling!
